Celebrating 30 years of Pale Saints's 1992 album In Ribbons with an expanded reissue. Pre-order now alongside a replica 4-print tea towel, and a limited import of Mrs. Dolphin on Green + Black Marble LP - a compilation compiling the band's early 4AD years.

Today, Pale Saints announce an expanded reissue of their 1992 album In Ribbons, featuring previously unreleased demo’s and two reworks by The Tintwistle Band. Missing its original release date last year due to Covid delays and production plant woes, the record, which Pitchfork named one of The Best Shoegaze Albums of All Time, is finally getting the 30th Anniversary celebration it deserves with a special double LP / CD release.

The first disc features the UK version of the album with the second featuring a bonus disc of never before heard demos that include their first attempt at Slapp Happy’s ‘Blue Flower’ and Ian Masters’ rare 4 track recording of their beloved Nancy Sinatra cover ‘Kinky Love’. Additionally, the bonus disc features two brass band versions by The Tintwistle Band (previously only heard on a limited, bonus 7” with the initial UK LP pressing).

Arriving in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, the limited double LP edition is being pressed on unpigmented vinyl by The Vinyl Factory in West London. A single disc, black vinyl version is also being released, as well as a double CD edition.
